What people are saying about sick pay at Home Bargains

  • Best thing

    Short shifts, get them over and done with.
    Only contracted 8 hours which is perfect as I’m a student. Pay is better than other places for my age.

    Worst thing

    Management- some are rude, don’t speak to you, don’t help…
    Too much work. Managers expect us to get all stock out and done.
    Not enough staff in when there should be.
    Unpaid breaks.
    Often get the bad late shifts all the time!
    Shifts change last minute.
    Very stressful environment - not nice especially since college is stressful.
    Usually always weekend shifts. No time to relax or socialise with others out of work.


    Home Bargains Employee, December 2021

  • Best thing

    Fast paced, always something to do. Above minimum wage. If you work hard then there's a good chance of progression.

    Worst thing

    Unpaid breaks, work can be physically demanding.


    Home Bargains Employee, May 2021

  • Best thing

    Good staff most customers are ok

    Worst thing

    Never knowing what time your shift finishes when you’re on the fill shift
    They don’t like giving us breaks

  • Best thing

    It is close to where I live.

    Worst thing

    Shift times changing the day before. Managers are unapproachable. Staff are left to their own devices and never asked how they are, if they have had breaks etc.
